Windows 7: Macrium question

Macrium question

For some reason I've been unable to turn on my windows firewall. I tried to go back a few days(when it worked) with system restore and it's not working either. I created an image with Macrium and am wondering if I reinstall my operating system (7 pro) and restore the image, should the other problems be solved?

Re-installing Windows then restoring the Image would be a waste of time.
If the problem exists in that image, it will always exist when it is restored.

When you restore a Image, it erases the drive and restores the image just as it was when created. Including any problems that were present at the time it was created.

This is why its a good idea to keep a few images in store.
Do you have another one before that one?

type services.msc in run box, scroll to windows firewall service, right click it, Properties, select from disable to automatic, then click start. you should be able to start the firewall from the ation center or control panel\windows firewall.

I thought that about the image restore. I tried services.msc in addition to a clean boot etc....and nothing seems to work (for both the restore and firewall probs). I've also done virus/malware scans to no avail.

If you created an image before all this happened, you have nothing to lose by re-imaging the disk. Let us know how that turns out.
